Starting in the Spring, Sunrise Daisy will offer free, weekly and monthly creative writing workshops. No writing experience is needed.
Weekly Group - Milwaukie
Mondays from 7:15pm-8:45pm
Sunrise Daisy Retreat | 10560 Main Street | Milwaukie, OR 97222
Creative writing workshop for anyone ages 15 to 39 with any experience with cancer -- current patients, survivors, or those supporting a close family member or friend. No writing experience is needed. Participants, led by a trained facilitator, find a welcoming space to process their experience through writing.
This group involves freewriting! In a typical session, we’ll work with three or four different writing prompts and members who wish to share their writing with the group are given the opportunity to do so. All members are encouraged to respond to each others’ work with positive feedback and thoughtful discussion.
Monthly Group - Gresham
2nd Sunday of each month from 10am-2pm
Your Sanctuary of Healing | 109 N Main Ave, Suite 203 | Gresham, OR 97030
Cancer survivors and caregivers come together to share in writing, compassionate listening and inspiration. We will begin to make sense of the bigger picture as we dig into the details of our stories.
Excerpts from selected memoirs will guide our writing and participants will be encouraged to share snippets of their work throughout our time together. We will begin and end our sessions with a brief meditation.
Facilitator will provide food for the first session in April, but moving forward, participants should plan to bring a snack or sack lunch to nibble on while working.
